How to Determine Stocking Rates of Ponds
A specific body of land or water can only support a specific number of species at a given time. Once an area has surpassed its maximum population, the entire ecosystem begins to suffer: the amount of food available decreases, water quality becomes poor, and the future population growth of the species becomes stunted.
Controlled stocking of farmed fish uses the concepts of carrying capacity to efficiently produce high yields. Learn more about the stocking rates of catfish and tilapia in the link below.
